Administrative division

Germany is divided in States (Länder). These states are subdivided in Landkreise or Rural districts, which are made up of municipalities (Gemeinden) and Kreisfreie Städte, or free urban districts.

In some states municipalities are combined into Ämter and Grossgemeinden (larger bodies, but the individual municipalities still exist).

All States, disctricts and the majority of the municipalities use arms.
